I'm going to have to try to make it back there this year. I've only been there for the Halloween event in recent years but it would be nice to revisit this park after 25 or so years of not going (and just get a bunch of rides on Blue Streak, because it's inexpensive).
I know the park has problems, but it would be nice to see it succeed and get out of the terrible financial problems the park had.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I need to get there this summer, it's been about 10 years since I've been and the park is only about 20 mins from a relative's camp. $10 to ride all day is a hell of a deal.

I keep saying I'll visit this park before they close for good. I almost made it there last year, but they were closed due to rain (I don't fault them one bit for closing since it was a torrential downpour all day. I think most parks would have closed but because Waldameer is awesome they stayed open almost the entire day).

I had to push back my Western PA trip to next year... so naturally they'll announce that they are closing forever this Fall. So good to see it running nicely though.

That was cool...glad to hear that the park is still hanging on and even turning a profit. Despite the fact that I know that it would likely never happen, I would love to see this park turn into a mini-Knoebels.

The main thing people need to remember at CLP is to not walk and look at their cell phones or they're pretty much guaranteed that they are going to twist an ankle where the cement has buckled from the tree roots. :lol:

I was watching the footage of the park walk through and had the same thought. I've had a lot of ankle problems so just looking at the asphalt made me cringe a little. Even without looking at my phone that's some rough terrain. I'm sure fixing the asphalt is not high on the park's to do list though with their current finances.
